INDIANAPOLIS, April 3, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Business professionals looking for a second career may want to look twice at becoming an Allstate agency owner in Indiana. The nation's largest publicly-held personal lines insurer is seeking individuals with management experience to invest in owning an exclusive Allstate agency. The company plans to appoint 20 new insurance agency owners in Indiana in 2012 and is offering a $5,000 referral award to anyone who recommends a qualified candidate, to be paid upon appointment.
In addition, Allstate's new and existing Indiana insurance agencies plan to hire more than 100 licensed sales professionals through the year. The company is seeking to increase agency presence across the state and specifically in Indianapolis, Fort Wayne, South Bend, Evansville, Lafayette and Northwest Indiana. Allstate is currently the fourth-largest auto insurer in Indiana with 310,108 vehicles insured in the state.
"We see a significant opportunity in the current economy for entrepreneurs and mid-career professionals who are looking for a business opportunity with a recognized brand," said David Kaehr, Allstate's Indiana Agency Sales Leader. "Successful Allstate agency owners have historically come from management or sales backgrounds, and no prior insurance knowledge is needed. Product and sales education is included in the broad support we provide to agencies."
To help with its search, Allstate Insurance Company in Indiana is offering a $5,000 referral award to anyone who refers a candidate who meets qualifications and is appointed as an Allstate exclusive agent in 2012. Candidates need a minimum of $50,000 of liquid capital to invest in their agency. The advantage of investing in Allstate is agency owners are able to leverage one of America's most recognized brands without ever having to pay a franchise or licensing fee. Agency owners are independent contractors, not employees of Allstate. The capital invested in the business will go directly toward the success of that agency."Allstate is unique among all other insurers because its exclusive agents own the economic interest in the business that they write from day one," said Kaehr. "Allstate agency owners can sell the economic interest in their agency. No other branded insurer has this option. If you enjoy working with people to help protect the things they value most and prepare them for the future, you'll enjoy running an Allstate agency."
